About the Book

Vivid and dramatic narratives of the single most transformative experience in the lives of some of the most prominent spiritual leaders, writers, and healers on the planet. Arun Ghandi, Thomas Moore, Riane Eisler, John Gray, Pat Love, Jose Cervantes, Barbara De Angelis and many others describe their spiritual transformations: in chapels and temples; on a walk in Ireland; on an icy New Hampshire road; in the African jungle; alone, or at the feet of a great teacher. They were precipitated by tragedy, adversity, and by moments of great job. A few fit the template of a formal religious conversion, but many were far more secular. A "spiritual experience" is unique to each individual, and these accounts range from selfless service for others to devoted practice of a sacred tradition to self-affirming personal advancement. But all resulted in a life-changing path from that moment on.

Praise

“A useful book that offers methods, insights and anecdotes to help the reader to awaken and transform. The contributors tell their stories—not just any story, but the most significant story of their lives, the one that set them on their particular path of spiritual enlightenment. Honest, wise and useful.”
Jack Canfield, co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series
